Splendid live television
This must be one of the last entries of „They stand accused“. According to Wikipedia this weekly series was dropped by the Dumont Network in December 1954. There’s reference in the script to that same date a couple of times. The story was mildly interessting, the cast seemed able but unispired. They had to correct their lines time and again and couldn’t even agree on the name of the five-year old, whose fate the trial was all about. In other words - splendid live television.

They Stand Accused
For television standards, it was slow and dragged some; but in legal aspect: it was
interesting. Something that cable televison could do on court tv.
